Bravely Default 2 Monk Job Overview
In Bravely Default 2 Monk is extremely powerful when you first unlock it and remains the undisputed king of physical attack damage throughout most of the game until you unlock some of the later classes like Swordmaster and Phantom.

Eventually, though, it does get outclassed as equipment weight becomes less important and passive abilities from weapons become extremely powerful. Still, for a solid 60-80% of the game, Monk is the go-to physical damage class and Bare-Knuckle Brawler alone is worth giving it 4 stars.
